I NEVER said for a FACT,that the Emo's didn't have the clarity of the Adam's-but rather,I said I was DOUBTFUL.
Can you differentiate between opinion and fact?
I don't care if you have owned both,because anyone who is ignorant enough to give Samson monitors high praise-clearly has opinions that are completely invalid to anyone who has a clue about studio recording & gear.
I've owned my Adam A7's for 6 years and have recorded,mixed and mastered hundreds of songs on them and being that the AX7's are a significant from the A7's...I think it's more than fair to say that you have sh*t in your ears,if you honestly think that the Emo's outperform the AX7's in any way.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion,as monitor performance assessments are subjective(but only to a point)and as someone who has 20 years experience with recording and who has several years of experience doing research on the physics behind acoustics,I can't possibly take seriously,the opinions from a moronic and arrogant tool,such as yourself.
I am not a professional recording engineer by trade,but I have sufficient experience in the studio environment to realize when I am conversing with a bleeding imbecile who has the attitude of some jackass you typically find in a GuitarCenter.
Ultimately,the only thing that really matters is what an individual's ears tells them,in order to get the results they want(particularly if we're talking about the hobbyist's studio),so I don't expect anyone to take my skepticism towards the Emo's as scripture,but people should take other people's skepticism into consideration(as well as all other factors),rather than blindly following any particular assertion about a product based on his/her personal experience.
Opinions vary,even among seasoned professionals...but given enough time and trial and error in the studio,everyone who is serious about recording from any walk of life,will eventually realize that Samson monitors are incoherent consumer grade crap and the only thing worse than them,is a shelf stereo from Walmart.
Studio monitoring is a great deal more complex than a lot of people realize,replete with subtle nuances that go unnoticed until that individual has experienced several different types of monitors in a properly controlled acoustic environment.
Case in point,regardless of experience,no one should behave as a pretentious putz,as it's counterproductive...but then,I suppose you can't help yourself,as you love stroking your own ego.
Seriously....WTF is wrong with you?First you say that the Emo's are "crazy close" to the Adam's and then you contradict yourself & say that the Emo's out perform the Adam's.
You seem to imply that the Emo's are the top of the heap and yet,you keep referring to them in a past tense?
So then,you purchased both the Adam's and the Emo's and returned them both?
Since you seem to have such a disposable income,why don't you just spare yourself the bother and just spring for a pair of Event Opals,Barefoots or a pair of PMC monitors?
